The Freedom Program for LGBT+ Identifying Individuals in Texas

Starlite Recovery Center helps LGBT+ individuals struggling with addiction and mental health disorders build a strong foundation for long-term recovery. Located in the heart of Texas, Starlite is the leading provider of behavioral health and substance use disorder treatment for adults ages 18 and over.

Serving Unique Needs

For clients identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender-queer, intersex, or asexual (LGBT+), addiction to alcohol and other drugs can be a complex issue. Some of the primary issues these clients face on their journey to recovery include depression, anxiety, and trauma; feelings of shame, guilt, and rejection; confusion and self-identity conflicts. The caring staff at Starlite understands the unique needs of these clients and knows that with the right care and support, lifelong recovery from the disease of addiction is possible.

Comprehensive Treatment Experience

As Texas’ leading drug and alcohol treatment center, Starlite recognizes and appreciates that each individual client brings their own unique background and set of life experiences that makes them who they are today. We strive to offer rehab programming that meets our clients’ needs, both in their lives and in their recovery. Research has shown that LGBT+-identifying clients benefit from uniquely tailored addiction rehab – treatment that is affirming and integrative. The Freedom Program provides hope and healing to these clients in a safe and supportive environment.

Starlite's Freedom program provided a supportive environment of people who not only understood what I've been through, but supported me every step of the way. I'm so grateful for my time there & proud of the person that I've become.
